On Tuesday, farmers in Peddavoora mandal were protesting against the long wait to sell their grain. They were also waiting for lorries to transport the grains, which were not arriving at the IKP center located at Chalakurthy X road. This caused traffic on the Nagarjunasagar Hyderabad road to come to a halt.
The angry farmers sat on dharna and burned their grain on the road to express their frustration. They demanded that lorries should be sent immediately to solve their paddy purchase and transportation problems. The protest caused tension in the area for a while.
The police intervened and assured the farmers that their issues would be addressed. As a result, the farmers suspended their agitation.
